And thus is why Jurgen was fired. As it stands, we aren't going to make the World Cup. Thus, we leave it in the hands of Bruce Arena. Next round of fixtures are coming up, and USA needs some big wins if they are even going to get into the Intercontinental Play-Off.

They continue tonight, I'm looking forward to them. Nowhere near the standard of the South American qualifiers but still fun to watch.

 

A few good games tonight. USA have a must win as I can see Panama winning in Trinidad. Mexico vs Costa Rica is a good one. Costa Rica for me is the best team in North America while Mexico slightly behind it, so it should be a good one.

 

I just hope Panama qualify. They've been working for it for years. Also would like to see Tejada play at a World Cup.

I couldn't give a shit about the Canadian national team when I was there, but its seriously embarrassing that they lost to Honduras 8-1 back in 2012. I'm not sure how much they've changed but they were terrible back then too.

 

Well I can't say it was "embarrassing" for Canada given no one gives a shit about the national team over there. Games weren't even shown on TV. No endorsement for the sport.

 

Qualification isn't over yet, but I'm sure most people had Honduras to miss out on qualification this time around.

Hopefully Panama win. Not convinced by the USA just yet, they did beat Honduras after all. Panama away will be a bit tougher for them.

Believe. Believe sir. 

Dempsey is back, Pulisic will be a full-time starter in that role, which allows Bradley to play his natural position of holding MF and not so attacking. Bad line still needs some help, but last night may be the best I have ever seen the U.S. play.

I don't have anything against the USMNT, I just don't think they are very good. However the reason I want Panama to win is because they have Luis Tejada and Alberto Quintero who plays here at Universitario.

 

The NT I can't stand is Mexico. The USMNT are fine with me.

I expect another mexican victory and continue leading the table.

Lmao spazzos never change, one victory and suddenly " they're back" :4_joy:

I'm guessing you mean us. And I'm not saying we are back, I'm saying that our best player (Dempsey) is finally playing again. Our second best player (Bradley), is able to actually play his natural position now that Pulisic has stepped up to the plate. 

Still have a lot of wholes in the back, but we aren't back, but I don't think we are missing the World Cup which seemed like a real possibility just 2 days ago.

Why? Is it because they have been more successful and currently have better players? 

I wanted Klinnsman to stay. :8_laughing: 

 

No - I just actually don't mind most of the players. Marquez was amazing. 

But....

Chicarito is a bitch.

Mexico will coast in WCQ this cycle, but I still feel like Chile showed them for what they were.  They're too big for CONCACAF but not big enough for the world stage.

This. Although I feel Costa Rica are slightly better. Their best players are better than Mexico's best players, although a bit more unbalanced but way more ambitious. 

 

In other words, they are quality where as Mexico are quantity. I like Hirving Lozano though.

Costa Rica have beaten and lost to the USA by a 4-0 result in the past year.  They are decent but completely unreliable.  You do not know what Costa Rica side you're going to see.

That's a good point actually. Completely forgot about that 4-0 loss. USA have never been good away to central american sides either.

 

Mexico is about the level of Paraguay realistically. They have good players but really only go to the WC on a consistent basis because they are in CONCACAF. They have a fanbase with a huge ego. I think the worst example was when they played Venezuela in the Copa America and began with the ole's a minute into the match.

Paraguay struggled with the USA.  Mexico is much better than Paraguay.

I think ARG, BRA, CHI, and COL are better than Mexico, although Colombia are barely ahead.  Mexico's attacking (and risky) style is GREAT for taking down weak teams.  It is not good against anyone with the ability to punish it.

Colombia are not better than Mexico at this current moment. Colombia have been dreadful since the Colombia - Paraguay game at least years Copa America. Completely clueless on the ball and no defensive efforts whatsoever.


Its hard to judge really. You're basing it on Paraguay struggling with the USA, but I can just as easily say that Mexico struggled with Venezuela and got smashed by Chile. USA were also at home so that's an advantage for them.

Off topic:  I hate the idea of WC expansion.  It's going to ruin how qualification can be tense for big sides that fall asleep.  I also don't think there are 48 sides good enough to win a WC.

Apparently, CONCACAF is going to get 6.5 bids.  Are you serious?

The only way to judge this is if there is a merger, and I don't think it will really happen.

The expansion will be like the Euro's. Will let in a lot of teams that shouldn't be in the World Cup that will throw 10 men behind the ball. 2026 will be a snoozefest. I want Peru to qualify for a WC but not that one. We'd just be seen as one of the teams who shouldn't be in it. I rather qualify fairly.
